I liked the sketch so much I made another card using some BG:

Do you like scraplifting?
Everybody is so crazy about sketches but one of my faves is actually scraplifting. I will browse through sites and magazines until I find a layout that grabs my attention and I will base my own layout on it. I am not one of those ladies that can pull a Picasso out of her butt on a daily basis, I need help (often) LOL. Found a website that actually challenges people to lift somebody elses creation. Check it out!!

Here is a sketch from the PageMaps site (April 2008)

Techniques (Blog candy)
First of all, isn't this layout by Kelly Goree absolutely stunning? I *LOVE* it. I also love the technique she used on her picture, using a BW photo and then adding a splash of colour. The thing is, I have no idea how to do this. Do you use special markers, some cool software program.... I dunno.

I would love it if you would leave a comment or link on how to do this particular technique so that I can start trying it out myself. I have Adobe PhotoShop Elements 6.0 but to be honest I haven't really used it yet, I am scared of it LOL...
I threw a couple of items together as a RAK, for those that leave a comment. I will draw a name next Sunday evening. Thanks!
